Notes on creativity

One of our most creatively gifted staff members completed a five year tour of service in the Center for Teaching Excellence and its predecessors, yesterday. As some readers know, I always being our weekly Management Group Meeting agenda with a quotation that is intended to convey a useful context for the meeting and the week.

For this week I found a great website on creativity: Here are are the quotations I chose to acknowledge and celebrate his contributions.

As the season of believing seems to wind down let me gently remind you that many dreams still wait in the wings. Many authentic sparks must be fanned before passion performs her perfect work in you. Throw another log on the fire. 
(Sarah Ban Breathnach)

To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.
(Henri Bergson)

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
(Mary Lou Cook)

There are two ways of being creative. One can sing and dance. Or one can create an environment in which singers and dancers flourish.
(Warren G. Bennis)
